Who would the terrorists have voted for?

I recall this was a hot question during the election season. The right screamed triumphantly that the terrorists would vote for Kerry dammit! This was always of course unsubstantiated and rather based on hearsay at best, but never did they interview a terrorist to actualy confirm the claim. Nor did Gallop or Zogby run a poll on terrorists to see who they favored really. I think they were too busy trying to poll those damned cell phone users.

In any case, from teh bowels of Iraq a few of the reporters who were kidnapped by insurgents got to interview those insurgents. They were even sharp enough to ask them who they would vote for.
The cell leader trained with terror leader Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan and told them the insurgents supported a Bush presidency because they believed it meant that "there will be confrontation, occupation and radicalization of the Iraqi people

Well I am glad that question has finally been put to rest. Also, congratulations Insurgents, your team won!

We here at MIT realize this may sound like its a few months too late to announce to the insurgents who won the US election. However, since shit is pretty FUBAR in Iraq, perhaps the news is a little slow going over there. I can't imagine many newspaper delivery guys, sticking to their route and filling those metal vending machines with newspapers all the while dodging IEDs and RPGs and other three letter acronyms sinonymous with death. Besides, what do you think the demand for newspapers is in Iraq these days? Its not like a guy is gonna put his bazooka or his AK to shuffle around his pockets for a fuckin quarter. Not to mention the state of Newsstands in Iraq.
